The Venetian Garganega 2021
Each year I journey to Veneto, Northern Italy, to make this tiny batch release.
'Garganega' is the region's traditional white grape. I source a small parcel of this precious fruit from the green hills of Soave, in the Venetian heartland.
My mission: to apply modern Australian winemaking to this ancient Italian grape.
I make the wine at a friend's winery - Dama del Rovere, a small family operation in the hills above Verona.
Unlike the Italians, we use a slow, cold fermentation. We bottle early under screwcap to trap the wine's freshest, most vibrant characteristics.
This crisp, fragrant white gives delicate aromas of white flower, almond blossom, and citrus.
This is the perfect match for any seafood dish. I love enjoying The Venetian with classic Summer recipes like Calamari alla Siciliana.
